  • High starch cassava varieties - Sree Athulya And Sree Apoorva
High starch cassava varieties - Sree Athulya And Sree Apoorva
By Central Tuber Crops Research Institute (CTCRI)
The extractable starch content of existing cassava varieties is only 20 to 24%. Cassava varieties Sree Athulya and Sree Apoorva have about 30% extractable starch content.
Intended Application
Starch and sago are produced from cassava tubers. While cassava starch has many applications like textile sizing, adhesives for corrugated boxes, food additives and cosmetics, sago is mostly consumed as “Fasting food” in North India.
Product Design and Silent Features
Maturity: 10 months; Yield: 35 to 40 tonnes/ha High extractable starch: 30 to 34 % Suitable for starch and sago production
Current Market status/Novelty
In the cassava industrial belt of Tamil Nadu, the cassava tubers are priced based on their starch consent. These varieties have about 25% higher starch, therefore will fetch 20 to 25% higher price than existing varieties.
Development Stage
Varieties already released Available for licensing to seed producers and industries
Future Works
Efforts are on to add few valuable attributes to these varieties like cassava mosaic disease resistance and high protein leaves for animal feed.
